Exactly. I do not demand high-quality optical eyecandy - after all I enjoyed the orignal "Elite" on a C-64 - but nowadays a bit of graphics is expected after games like Elite+, Privateer, X - Beyond the frontier etc. And I abhor games that feel like spreadsheets. I never got into Imperium? as far as I remember (where you play an emperor of a star empire that can prolong his life with a certain substance). I did not even like Master of Orion 3 either.
